Fatal Wedding Big Reveal Day 12: The First Dance


Here's what I said about this one in February: Those of you who've read Fatal Justice may have a "leg up" so to speak when it comes to choosing the first song Sam and Nick will dance to as husband and wife. If you want to know Sam's favorite, hurry up and read Fatal Justice! :-) I love that Ronlyn and Aly included Bless the Broken Road, which is one of my favorites, and they didn't even know that! Which one will I vote for? My favorite or Sam's? Hmmmm....

Here are our choices:

Song 1: At Last, Etta James 

Song 2: Thank You For Loving Me, Bon Jovi

Song 3: Bless the Broken Road, Rascal Flatts

And the winner is (as if there was ever any question):

Number 2!!!!

While I managed to work one of the other songs into the story, I really love the first-dance scene in Fatal Destiny! Can't wait for you guys to read it on MONDAY! In case you missed it yesterday, the novella is now available for pre-order on Amazon, Barnes & Noble and the Carina Press site. 

Today's drawing is a $30 gift card to i-Tunes, so go forth and comment on Sam & Nick's first dance!

This is going to be one of the best weddings I ever "attended". Can't wait to read about the happy day. And I'm so glad Scotty is at the wedding. I hope we see LOTS more of him in the future.

Yippeee! So glad you guys approve of the song YOU chose for Sam & Nick (okay--even if you hadn't chosen this one I might've had to fudge it because I really wanted this one. Fortunately you saved me from having to do that with your wise choice--LOL)

Planning this wedding with you guys has been the most fun I've had as a writer. Thank you again for all the excitement and enthusiasm for Washington's wedding of the year!

LOve the first dance Marie...The whole book is amazing...the love between these two has me jealous for my own Nick...he has his quirks, but I love him and i love Sam...the Fatal Series is one of my top referals...and Slippery When Wet was the first album I ever received, I was like seven!!

Pat L. said...

I like At Last and dont know the BJ song, but the title sounds excellent for a wedding song. Will have to listen to it later.

Bon Jovi's "Thank you for Loving Me" just says it all! It's perfect.

Beautiful song. I vaguely recall hearing it but it might as well have been new to me. The lyrics are so meaningful, it resonates.

Perfect selection for Nick and Sam. I love Bon Jovi but never heard this song. It is a great song.
Marie...I think Bon Jovi probably owes you some royalties!
99 cents on Amazon!

Jacquie said...

Absolutely love the song! It had to be Bon Jovi. I don't know how much did Tinkerbell charge, but she was sure worth it!!
Thanks Marie for doing this for us, your readers.

Aly said...

I hear Bon Jovi & I think of Sam & Nick & Marie...and that freaks me out a bit :) But this is the absolutely perfect song for them!!

BJ is very nice. But I still love the Etta song. It just sounds like a very intimate dance to me, more than the others.
